Columbus College of Art & Design celebrates its alumni
One considers his time with The Mouse to be a career highlight—and dreams of being the first animator in space. Another has illustrated more than 30 picture books about the lives of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Nick Cannon. And yet another discovered her love for education while teaching Saturday Morning Art Classes at CCAD.
Columbus College of Art & Design graduates are changing culture and commerce, making major impact in Columbus and points far beyond.
CCAD celebrates its grads’ outstanding work every day—and, once a year, recognizes a select few with its Alumni Awards. Last year, the college expanded its awards to recognize five graduates (up from just one previously), and, this year, added another: the Core Values Award. This new award—which may or may not be awarded each year—recognizes a CCAD graduate who demonstrates inspiration, accountability, respect, and positivity in all they do. A recipient may be selected by the committee from any nomination.
This year’s Alumni Award winners are:
Emerging Leader Award—Ali Prater (Advertising & Graphic Design, 2013), freelance senior designer
Creative Entrepreneur Award—Sugandh Agrawal (Industrial Design, 2005), founder and creative director, Gunas New York
